It's amazing what you can experience
When you view things from a different perspective.
It's early on a Saturday and while most other kids are still sleeping, a Scout troop has already had their map reading class and has set off on a five-mile hike with their troop leader, John Hartman. If you ask John, he'll tell you without hesitation a defining moment in his life was the day he achieved the highest honor in scouting - Eagle Scout, which has formed the foundation for John's approach to life. This morning, John has chosen to pass on his knowledge to a new generation of Scouts - sharing experiences that will stay with them far longer than their next camping trip.
A New Perspective
Not long after earning his Eagle Scout rank, John enrolled at Washington State University where he graduated with a degree in business and forest management. He soon went to work for a major timber firm where he was in his element, managing part of a complex logging operation at the base of Mount St. Helens long before it erupted. After several years of putting his outdoor experience to work while passing on his practical business insight to his team, John moved from the timber industry to operate a fast-paced restaurant business with his wife Sallie.
Fueled by their independent spirits and a strong work ethic, John and his wife worked hard building their restaurant business, offering customers a comfortable place to relax and be served a home cooked meal. John's strong management background was instrumental in successfully running the restaurant. Throughout eight years of operation, John managed more than 40 employees, creating a warm and friendly atmosphere that added up to a moving experience for his customers and staff alike.
On The Move
Whether it's with his coworkers, the scout troop or his own family, John has always been committed to creating great experiences in everything he does. It's an approach he also brings to his 20-year career as a successful real estate professional serving Everett, Marysville and the surrounding areas. John's extensive knowledge and insight makes the process of buying or selling a home a rewarding experience from start to finish. And, as a training specialist with many agents coming to him for answers, John is always on top of the latest developments in every area of real estate to better help his clients and his agents.
For more than 20 years, John has been delivering a whole different experience for his real estate clients. With his thorough understanding of the buying and selling process, John helps his clients through every step of the process and ensures that their best interests are always being addressed and at the top of the priority list.

As I have indicated, I have been in the real estate profession for over 20 years. During that time, I have mainly concentrated on Residential and Condominiums, both resale and new construction. That is what I really enjoy - finding that new home for people and watching their eyes light up when they turn the key in their door for the first time!
I made the decision early on in my career to commit to a higher level of professionalism by obtaining a Broker's License, which required 2 years of full time experience and additional levels of education. I have had that license for over 18 years now and I have also been training new agents for 18 years. Additionally, I have been the General Manager of our firm since 1999.
I am also well versed in smaller commercial transactions and land sales.
I truly enjoy what I do....watching people's eyes light up when they realize they have accomplished one of their dreams - buying a home. This is one of the greatest professions in the world!
